Scrambling Course

Alpine Scrambling Course

Learn the skills needed to venture off-trail on snow and rock to reach non-technical alpine summits.

Alpine Scrambling fills the gap between on-trail hiking and roped climbing. The Alpine Scrambling course teaches the skills needed to venture off-trail on snow and rock to reach non-technical alpine summits. Scrambling may at times involve unroped movement on and across low or moderately exposed snow and rock terrain but does not include roped climbing.
